These vehicles are well built and very reliable as lomg as they have been serviced absolutely correctly.

At this mileage you also need to consider the wear to the suspension bushes, engine mounts and axle bushes which are the weak points on these.

If its an manual the clutch will likely be close to requiring a replacement too.

The rest of them is bullet proof as long as the service history is right.

Best regards
